Tomorrow, the Standbys perform.
Tim Poe, the serial liar was eliminated. The elimination waa glossed over and let go. It’s definitely the last we’ll see or hear from Poe, at least as far as NBC was concerned. Yes, this was taped before his lies were discovered, but they could definitely have given him a bitchier edit if they had chosen to. Mary Joyner, daughter of Flo Jo was also eliminated. Male soprano, Andrew De Leon was also let go.
